How should you deal with acute kidney injury in your small animal patients?

Date added: 25th February 2015

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a rapid reduction in renal function that may be due to a variety of causes broadly classified as pre-renal, renal and post-renal. Intrinsic renal causes include toxins, including nephrotoxic drugs, as well as infections.

In the next webinar for Emergency and Critical Care Club, ‘How to Deal with Acute Kidney Injury’, Shailen Jasani considers the causes, pathogenesis, clinical presentation findings and diagnosis of AKI. He will provide you with a rational approach to the treatment of these patients, clarifying the role of intravenous fluid therapy and diuretics and discussing a variety of the other indicated supportive therapies. Indications for considering renal replacement therapy or euthanasia will also be covered.
